Not all heroes make the news. In fact, doing 'hero work' is often unknown and rather thankless. So, we wanted to show love and gratitude to these lady heroes. Why? Because for years they all have worked tirelessly to advocate at the highest levels of Philly government for the rights of students with disabilities to get the training and services they need in the classroom in order to transition to their independence.

Thank you, Marissa Post, Barbara Dowdall, Anna Perng, Michele McKeone, and Hillary Linardopoulos!

For today's Teacher Appreciation Week honors the Digitability team is going with our very own founder and CEO, Michele McKeone. While Michele was a special education teacher at South Philly High she actually began building Digitability 'live' with her students in her classroom. From there Michele created a company called Autism Expressed.

As you can see in this throwback video from 2013 when Michele was on MSNBC she had a clear vision and fire for people with neurodiverse needs to get the digital literacy and digital skills they need to gain their independence. As Michele says so well, "Digital skills are to jobs as phonics is to reading.".

And now in addition to the Digitability program for schools and organizations, Michele's newest vision is to help parents and their children with neurodiverse needs gain critical digital literacy work-ready skills this summer (program details: http://digitability.com/digitalliteracy/)

Thank you, Michele, for being a teacher, visionary educator, and the empathy to be a world changer for so many people!

It is Teacher Appreciation Day and Week! So we'd like to honor a few incredibly kind and caring teachers we know who are using Digitability in their classrooms, starting with Dawn from Roxborough High in Philly!

Dawn is a special education teacher who's faithfully been helping the students in her autistic support classroom learn digital literacy, financial literacy, and technology skills so they can transition to a meaningful job and gain their independence. Thank you, Dawn, we are grateful for all that you do!

Who has the power to help people with neurodiverse needs gain their independence? Digitability's founder, Michele McKeone, provides the answer during this Philly Tech Week event...

"We have to organize to hold our leaders accountable. They can't just say they believe in diversity and inclusion. What's the baseline to measure that and what's the rate of progress they are implementing and achieving?

Us. The community. We're the only ones that have the power to hold our leaders accountable for the change we want to see."
